"The Cove" Wipes Smile off Flipper’s Face



“The Cove”
is a powerful piece of film activism. Done mostly in secrecy, these filmmakers devised multiple camouflaged cameras in order to capture the activities of the town’s fishermen serving the multi-billion dollar industry of dolphin harvesting for export to sea parks.

The dolphins that aren’t quite smiley or friendly enough? They are then pushed into another cove for slaughter. Subsequently, the dolphin meat is served to the town’s school children, with unfortunate side effects caused by the high levels of mercury. Look for this film at a theater near you.
